In a week when the attempted poisoning of the President by an Elvis impersonating letter mailer barely registers on the news radar, it’s hardly a surprise that the Boy Scouts big announcement was ignored. The Scouts are reversing a long standing policy on homosexuals. They will allow homosexual scouts while continuing the ban on homosexual adult scout leaders. Is there any doubt they’ll reverse the adult ban within a few years? It’s been amazing to watch this happen. The progressives targeted the Boy Scouts and now suddenly a once core belief is being tossed aside. At this point it’s obvious the Scouts no longer have core beliefs of any sort.
The Boy Scouts allowed themselves to be pressured into making changes. Make no mistake, they were organized against. Progressives entered at the local level with the sole intent on forcing changes from above. It was coordinated and it was successful because the Scouts were unprepared for such an assault. A once Christian organization, teaching Christian values to young men now cannot call itself Christian. The end result will be the destruction of the organization as conservative families leave only to not be replaced with liberal families unless they have some sort of agenda they have to continue pushing.
Once again, the right has proven they don’t understand how the left operates. We sit back in wonder as society comes to accept the unseemly acts homosexuals engage in. Meanwhile the government schools have targeted children on this subject for nearly 20 years. The Boy Scouts were a target even before their successful lawsuit which allowed them to ban homosexuals. They were an easy target, it’s easy to gain entry into leadership where change can quietly be achieved. We conservatives sit back and do nothing thinking that because we on a lawsuit everything will be fine only to wake up in horror a decade later to discover the homosexuals infiltrated the Boy Scouts and reversed the policy.
What fools we are. The left has done this repeatedly and we still haven’t learned our lesson. If they can’t win at the Court, they’ll target your kids and make their changes in the future. The left has done this for the better part of a century and we conservatives never seem to catch on. We think we’re winning the gun control battle because the Senate couldn’t pass Obama’s bill but we’re losing. Why? Because at government schools all over the country progressive “educators” are teaching children guns are dangerous and the people who use them are evil and thus they need to be controlled. If you think leftists aren’t trying to infiltrate pro-gun organizations like the NRA, you’re out of your mind.
The Boy Scouts have no core values anymore. As such Christians should have no part in the organization. We have to create our own scouting organizations, whether they’re affiliated with our churches or connected nationally. It’s unfortunate, the Boy Scouts have been a good and decent organization teaching Christian life skills to millions of boys. By overturning the ban on homosexual scouts, the organization told all of us it has no core values. If they’re willing to change on this value, a core belief just a decade ago, what other “core” beliefs will they give up? How long before the Boy Scouts start promoting homosexual activity like the Girl Scouts? My boys won’t be in the organization to find out.
